Service Projects

The objective of Service Projects (SP) is to engage a broad community of bioengineers and scientists in various technologies developed within CECT and to provide new outlets for applying these technologies. Through collaborations with academic and industry partners, these projects will expand the applications of the TR&D and CP technologies and potentially foster new research initiatives at the home institute. Additionally, these SPs will be instrumental in the education and training of students and the technology transfer between the SP and TR&D institutions. 


Overview of Service projects

The TR&Ds provide the core technology or platform for engaging in SPs with partnering institutions. This serves as a test bed for novel ideas or exploratory projects utilizing 3D biofabrication as a basis. Student exchange between the institutes is also encouraged.
